At least they don’t do the “exciting news! We have an exclusive limited time offer (that we’ll offer to the entire world for months) for an amazing (shitty) deal on a new credit card....” then droning on for 10 minutes lying about the benefits of the card and usefulness of miles like most other airlines do

The only one that bugs me a bit is the takeoff and landing announcements. Usually the captain will come on and announce we’re ready to depart so buckle up and turn off phones. Then right after a FA comes on and says the same thing. Same thing when the plane is making its descent. Otherwise it’s just normal welcome aboard and safety stuff.

Hi fellow fishes, I've been offered a Tech strategy role at PWC SDC, Bangalore. My total experience is of 6 years (2.5 pre-MBA and 3.5 post-MBA).
